Activity log is a plugin which simply logs what you're doing and when. For the latest version, to report a problem, or contact the author please visit https://github.com/AD7six/vim-activity-log

What does it do:

if you open and save a file, it'll create a log entries such as the following:

    2011-02-09 08:44:16;open;/home/andy/someproject/somefile
    2011-02-09 08:44:44;write;/home/andy/someproject/somefile

If you're in a git repository at the time, it'll also log the current branch at the time of writing, for example:

    2011-02-09 08:44:16;open;/home/andy/someproject/somefile
    2011-02-09 08:44:44;write;/home/andy/someproject/somefile;special-stuff


The main purpose of this plugin is to make time reporting easy for the forgetful programmer, without additional tools it provides a static log for you, but the format is such that you can easily import or analyze using whatever tool you feel comfortable with.
install details
save activity-log.vim to your vim/plugin dir.

If desired, you can change how your logs are generated by defining g:activity_log_location in your vimrc for example to get monthly logs rather than daily logs:

let g:activity_log_location = '/some/location/monthlylogs/%Y/%m.log'
